Hi Pat, My name is***** will be glad to help. Coolant is the worst thing to have in any engine or transmission due to its corrosive properties on the bearing surfaces, etc. Once the chemical process starts from coolant contamination, failure is inevitable and usually at the very least you will do a reaseal and rebearing
Whats your serial number? There should be a breakdown available
Unfortunately with the burnt oil and the symptoms you are having it means the transmission needs to be replaced or rebuilt. Remove the filter and cut it open using a filter cutting tool so you do not contaminate the sample with cutting filings and inspect a sample of the filter for metal and friction material which confirms the transmission failure. the burnt oil and the slipping is confirmation but inspecting the filter is also further confirmation. Let me know
If confirmed you may be able to save some money by purchasing used from a salvage. They can put this on a locator for you.
If you find aluminum it will be converter and also likely charge pump
If there is friction material then you will be looking at clutches too
